London Underground Bombing Victim gets married today

London Bombing Victim Gill Hicks Gets Married Today - Pictured here at her rehearsalCongratulations to Gill Hicks who WILL be walking down the aisle

Australian Gillian Hicks, who lost both her legs below the knee in the terrorist attacks at Kings Cross London Underground Station, will be going down the aisle today with prosthetic limbs and a single walking stick as she gets married.

"The priest who will officiate described her performance at the rehearsal as inspirational and courageous.

'She did walk up the aisle. She has been very brave,' Father Kit Cunningham said.

'She has character and determination. If you have been to the gates of hell, it must have some effect.'

As well as losing both feet in the bombing, Ms Hicks lost 75 per cent of her blood and her heart stopped twice on the way to the hospital
." Read the full story here.

Inspiring people like Gill Hicks, blogger Rachel and the many other survivors of the attacks do more to defeat the aims of terrorism than a lot of politicians and senior police's posturing and spinning! Congratualations Gill, I hope you have a wonderful day.
